3rd Thursday of every month. Sign-up is @ 8pm with Open Mic and then Slam to follow
For smoking hot poetry!
A cover charge $5 (Only $5???) goes towards paying for the feature performer and prize money for the winner of the slam.
As always we’ll have an Open Mic for any and all types of performance; bring your guitar, your songs, your stand-up, your rants and ragtime show tunes – it’s all about getting it out there! Or you can always sign up for the slam, see if you have what it takes to reign supreme, and take home the cash prize.

Burlington Slam Project Feat.
In like a lion, and out like a…a lion that has learned poetry.
It’s March! Which means the weather isn’t making up its mind, and the only real consistency is that we’re still slammin’ baby! This is our last open slam of the season before finals next month – which means one-timers from this season need to slam this month to be able to qualify for said finals. Wanna make our national team? Better get on that! And for this month, we’re bringin’ in a dear friend, BSP alumni (2010, 2012), and all-around awesomesauce poet – Truth Is…!
Truth is … is a multiple time individual slam champion, a 6x national & 7x regional spoken word team member; participating in well over 200 slams. She has graced the stage of the Annual ‘When Sisters Speak’ spoken word concerts 3x and in addition to slams and a long list of feature performances across North America she has headlined in several conferences focused on social equity, gender equality, and youth motivation and opened up for Canadian Hip-Hop idol K-OS.
Bring a fiver and a friend, hit the slam for your chance to win some cash money, or hit the open mic if you wanna share without all that pesky judgement. Don’t want to do either! No problem! We need judges and volunteers all the time, and of course, if you just want to be audience, that’s great too! There’s no show without you!
Hope to see y’all out!
